It has been our privilege to extend congratulations to 
the members of 54 consecutive graduating classes of 
Florence State Teachers College. The graduation styles in 
1894 were different from those of today, and so was the 
face of the store building in which Rogers served the 
people of the Tennessee Valley long ago. 

Yes, graduating styles and store buildings change, but 
inside the graduates and inside this store, there remains a 
steadfast adherence to certain ideals and principles. 

Now, as in the past, these ageless ideals must remain 
in the hearts of students and business men in order to make 
secure the glorious future to which you are richly entitled. 
We pledge to you, the leaders of tomorrow, that our store 
will always be an institution of integrity, good will and 
highest ideals. 

Accept our warmest congratulations upon your worthy 
achievement.

picnic coolers full of well iced Dr. Pepper on the 
premises. It's a lot of fun. They say it has juvenile 



delinquency on the run. Since Dr. Pepper is whole- 
some and does something for you, elders and kids 
"drink" and dance together and have a "heck" of a 
time. Jacquie Strong of Salt Lake City with the con- 
certina is shown in this picture, made while in Holly- 
wood modeling for the '49 Dr. Pepper Calendar. 
Paramount was host. What's that hiding in the hay ?.

DEGREES 



B.A. 



Florence State Teachers College is primarily a teachers college, but because this 
institution believes in broad cultural training as well as in professional competence, it 
offers a wide selection of four year courses leading to either the general liberal 
arts degree of B.A. or the more specialized professional and pre-professional de- 
gree of B.S. These degrees represent a satisfactory basis for graduate work in 
recognized graduate schools of the country. 

The campus, located on approximately the highest elevation in the city, affords a 
delightful setting for a college. A ten year expansion period, including an increased 
enrollment from 650 to approximately 1,200 and the erection of seven new buildings, 
has made this institution the third largest college in Alabama. Its faculty member- 
ship and its curriculum have been enlarged proportionately. In the Spring of 1949, 
a committee on athletics approved a football program to be started in the Fall of 
this year. 

The influence of this institution on the entire Tennessee Valley has greatly con- 
tributed to the prestige of the community "the cultural, center of North Alabama."

Dear Son: 

I just read in the paper that students who don't 
smoke make much higher grades than those who 
do. This is something for you to think about. 

Love, Father. 

Dear Father: 

I have thought about it. But truthfully I would 
rather make a B and have the enjoyment of smok- 
ing: in fact I would rather smoke and drink and 
have a C. Furthermore, I would rather smoke and 
drink and neck and make a D. 

Love, Son. 

Dear: Son: 

I'll break your neck if you flunk anything.

A Memorable Year 



Congratulations to the Student Body and Faculty 
of Florence State Teachers College for completion of another 
outstanding year of accomplishments. 

The Staff of your annual has worked exceedingly 
hard tc give you a superb book and one which portrays the high- 
lights of memorable activities. 

Neither time, effort nor expense have been spared 
to provide you with a permanent record, attractively presented and 
complete in every detail. 

To preserve the photography and literary efforts 
of the Staff, the best grades of material have been combined with 
skilled workmanship to provide the finest quality yearbook. 

We are proud that the 1949 Staff selected us to 
help design, print and bind the "Diorama." We have earnestly 
endeavored to fulfill the confidence placed in us.
